Pete Tong NYE 'balloon drop' cancelled after protests

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-46721487

A plan to break records by releasing 130,000 balloons at a resort in the Philippines on New Year's Eve has been cancelled after a backlash over its potential environmental impact.
The party, at Okada Manila, is being headlined by British DJ Pete Tong.
Organisers had insisted the indoor event held no environmental risk as the balloons would be recycled.
But on Sunday both the resort and Tong confirmed it had been cancelled after the government got involved.
In a statement, Okada Manila said it "voluntarily" decided to cancel the event "as a sign of respect" for the government's campaign to protect the environment.
It came after they received a letter from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) on Sunday encouraging a change of plan.

(Pete Tong is UK slang for gone wrong. So appropriate here)
